Climate and the decline of great civilizations are related

gener 15, 2011

According to an article published by the journal Science, oak tree growth rings enable us to ascertain whether a given season was good for human life and development. Nasty climate conditions coincide with political turmoil and social changes. Relying on the researched facts, we can assert that the Fall of the Roman Empire occurred during times of great climate instability, because the tree growth rings of that period are tighter as water and nutrients supply were scarce.
